Watching a pup develop a keen nose and desire for birds is something that will never get old. We are using hidden remote launchers and homing pigeons to help the young dogs understand that you can only find a bird with your nose, when you run in early or don’t let the human flush the bird there are no retrieves to make, and when you find, point, and hold the point we will flush the bird and you will get to make the retrieve. We try to make sure the young dogs are rewarded for successful situations and we build on those and when the young dog rushes in or tries to take out the bird we launch it and move on without a retrieve. Learning from failure, and building on success. 💯 #ThisisNLK#birddogtraining#huntingdog#pointerpuppy#pointingdogs#gundogtraining#germanshorthairedpointer#gsp#uplandbirddog#NoLimitsKennels#dogtraining#retriever
Buck was having trouble put on weight. We switched his food to a higher fat content while maintaining his 30+% protien needed for his workouts. He gained 6lbs in 2 weeks on double food and is now ready to maintain his new weight. The vet wants him to stay here at 53lbs. He looks so much better and seems more full of energy. Hos new food has done well. Now its time to focus on training.
